The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Canouan

Bali-inspired seaside pampering

Tucked into the hillside overlooking the Caribbean Sea, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Canouan is the stuff drool-worthy Instagram feeds are made of. Shimmering ocean views from private balconies, island-inspired treatments and a soundtrack of crashing waves make this tropical retreat as relaxing as it is stunning.

Following check-in at a picturesque beachfront reception area, you’ll climb aboard a funicular to be whisked away to one of 10 treehouse-like treatment villas hidden by lush foliage. Upon arrival to your luxurious hideaway, you’ll be greeted with enviable vistas, a plush robe and a refreshing cup of ginger and honey tea to relieve stress before starting your journey to seaside Zen.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Canouan debuted two overwater treatment villas in 2022, giving the sanctuary one of the few overwater spa experiences in the Caribbean. These palapa-inspired hideaways offer not only an extra dose of privacy (you can only access the villas by boat), but deliver luxurious extras like steam showers and glass floors for an exclusive ocean view.
  • Treatment villas boast furnished ocean-view terraces that invite you to linger a little longer after your service. Private hot tubs built directly into the decks in some villas are an especially enticing way to wrap up your spa day.
  • Oceanfront yoga is a must for those looking to mix up their fitness routine on vacation. The Canouan spa offers gentle Hatha yoga, dynamic Vinyasa flow and 30-minute meditation sessions for those looking to calm an anxious mind.

This full-day adventure begins with a hike up Mount Royal and is followed by a turtle sanctuary visit before ending with a pampering session that includes a foot massage, Balinese full-body massage, facial and a 30-minute soak in your private hot tub with a bottle of champagne.
